It's kind of strange moving into a new neighborhood. It's taken us a couple of weeks to kind of adjust to this new community, not sure that it's really sunk it that this is our home now. This is where my children will spend their childhood, making memories (hopefully!).
It's a whole new territory. We still haven't met any of the neighbors. We really should go and introduce ourselves. I'm sure they are friendly! Our street is full of kids, and just about every house has Christmas lights hung and a tree shimmering in the window. Very inviting. We just need to get up the nerve.
In the meantime, though, we've been appreciating the breathtaking views from our development. I absolutely love where we live now. I am in awe of the amazing beauty that surrounds us. All we have to do is walk out onto our porch and this is what we see.
In the distance, you can see Mt. Rainier. It's actually an active volcano, so lets hope that it doesn't erupt in my lifetime! :-)
If we walk a few blocks up the street, the sight is amazing!!
From the top of our hill at sunset.
And of course, a few houses down (or I should say 'up' from us) is an amazing park for Bennett to play at! So excited.
He was in awe about these things, but I really didn't think he'd want to go down them.
But he went running for the stairs. He couldn't climb them fast enough.
He's got the slides in his sights now....
And he's down! I was super shocked he actually went down those gigantic slides. He wasn't scared in the slightest. The funny thing was, though, he didn't want to go again. I guess once was enough! Ha ha.
I can see that we will be spending a LOT of time at this park, SO happy that it's only a of couple steps away!
